What’s in your whites? Just thought I’d share this, before I got going with more serious business, as there’s a fair bit of controversy over whites (especially Zinc White). Many artists don’t use zinc white because they’re afraid the white’s going to start falling off their paintings, even though it’s a fantastic mixer if you don’t want to deaden your colours quite as much as Titanium White will and yet it’s present in many Titanium White tubes. Also many use Safflower instead of Linseed oil as it’s less yellowing.
Well here are five whites (from left to right): W&N’s Artist’s Titanium White, Mike Harding’s Titanium White, Jackson’s Artist’s Titanium White, W&N’s Winton (student) Soft Mixing White and lastly Winton Zinc White.
On the reverse of most of the tubes (except MH, his are on the front) there are the letters and numbers PW6 (permanent white number 6 - titanium dioxide) and/or PW4 (permanent white number 4 - zinc oxide)
The interesting thing is, Titanium White should be only PW6 and Zinc White should only be PW4, but MH uses both in his Titanium White and Jackson’s just use only PW6 in their Titanium White. The Winton Soft Mixing White (one of my favourites) is both PW6 and 4, with Safflower oil as the medium. W&N’s Artist’s Titanium White is PW6 & PW4 with Safflower as the medium and their Winton Zinc White is PW4 with Safflower as the binder/medium.
So if you have a phobia towards Zinc White, perhaps you might want to give it a chance. It’s a great mixer and if mixed with other colours it’s much more stable chemically. From what I’ve read, Zinc White should only really be avoided if you’re going to cake it on and leave it exposed to the air so it can oxidise, but in a mix it’s indispensable. Well, it is to me at least :) #art#paint#arttips#artlesson#colour#painting#oilpainting#demo#tutorial#white#white#titaniumwhite#zincwhite#zinc#safflower#chemistry#paint

My kinders are wrapping up their Primary Color Shapes!
First day we traced the basic shapes, circle, triangle, and square, and then learned what the three primary colors are. Then they painted their shapes (6 total, same shapes are same color).
Second day they received a trifolded paper from me, on each section we created a "color equation" (math integration) of R+Y, Y+B, and R+B. Then I showed students how to mix the paints on their paper and we created the secondary colors!
Last day, we cut our shapes apart and then cut them out. We discussed and reviewed our color equations and showed them with our shapes before going them down.
This project reviews tracing basic shapes with pencil, sharpie, and scissors. It also teaches primary colors and how to mix them to make secondary colors. All my students thought this project was super fun getting to mix colors and said their final project looked "cute" (their words 😊).
Monday is Enrichment Day! .
Let me explain my schedule so you understand why I do Enrichment. Monday’s classes are on a quarterly rotation. I get to see every class twice a week for about 8 weeks extra per year. I like having a separate curriculum per say for those days so that I don’t get confused during the regular week days. .
Here are my diligent 3rd graders working on Gustav Klimt’s Tree of Life. .
It’s so amazing to see what each one comes up with because they are so beautiful when done!!! #treeoflife#gustavklimt
